The first Taxonomy Boot Camp London will be held from October 18-19, 2016, at the Olympia Conference Centre, London.

Taking place this October, Taxonomy Book Camp London is a brand new conference designed to walk you through every aspect of embedding taxonomies in your organisation. From fundamentals like understanding their value, to choosing the right taxonomy tool or building a taxonomy from scratch, through to tagging and linked data, there's something for everyone who is considering or already using taxonomies.

UK FSG Connect unveils essential Apps for time-pressed professionals - 30 Sep 2016

FSG Connect, an imprint of Future Science Group (FSG), has announced the launch of three Apps for Apple and Android with the aim of giving time-pressed medical and science professionals the content they need both on-the-go and in an accessible format.

Launched in September, the Bioanalysis Zone, Oncology Central and Neurology Central Apps are free to download and access, and provide users with personalized content published on related websites over the previous 30 days.

Providing news, journal articles and video content, the Apps are the ideal way in which to stay up-to-date with these fast moving fields when the user is on their morning commute, lunch break or before bed.

The Apps will be developed even further over the coming months with social media integrations and bookmarking tools, for example.

Existing subscribers to Bioanalysis Zone, Oncology Central or Neurology Central will be able to sign in to the Apps with their existing user accounts.

US HighWire and Glencoe Software partner to deliver in-line video for journal publishers - 30 Sep 2016

HighWire Press Inc., the technology platform and strategic partner to scholarly publishers and societies, has named Glencoe Software, Inc.'s Data InPress Video Injection Service as a preferred partner for delivery of video content for its partner publishers. For any journal on HighWire's JCore platform, videos can automatically be inserted into published text and viewed on any computer, phone, or tablet.

Video data are integral to scientific research articles, but they have long been detached from the main articles pages on journal websites due to the limitations of print media and the constraints of content workflows and platform technology. Those constraints have been overcome with Glencoe Software's Video Injection Service.

Video data are converted from any file type into standardized formats for streaming to play-in-place viewers on desktop computers, tablets, or phones.
